Abstract

A panel of monoclonal antibodies was raised against the low-affinity human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) receptor alpha-chain expressed as recombinant protein on murine FDC-P1 cells. All the selected antibodies were of the IgG2A isotype and bound to protein A. They each recognized both native and recombinant receptors by indirect surface immunofluorescence and by immunoprecipitation. Several of the antibodies also recognized presumably denatured receptors as detected by immunoblotting of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Three different epitopes on the extracellular domain of the GM-CSF receptor alpha-chain were defined by these antibodie..
